Age Scotland Community and Events Fundraiser, Pippa Zawisza, writes about how you can get involved with the charity on a local level.
Are you looking for the next challenge? Are you looking for a great day out? Most importantly, are you after some fun?
If you answered yes to any of our questions then Age Scotland needs you!
There are a number of ways that you can get involved and here at Age Scotland HQ we are looking for some enthusiastic people to take part in fundraising activities before the end of 2012.
